DETROIT RED WINGS TRADE FOR MATTHIEU SCHNEIDER JUST BEFORE NHL DEADLINE…..
For all my Alaska readers of VINMAN’s VERBOSITy, this just in off the Associated Press Wires……Red Wings Add Schneider for Playoffs Run
The Vinman thinks this is a good trade for Detroit, this year. I’ve always liked the play of the 6″ 33-year-old defenseman born in on the big island of Manhattan, New York. Losing Avery is like losing the pinball machine in your basement. It was fun while we had him, but he’s not a mandatory part of a championship team. It does make signing Darren McCarty over the summer a must as he’s decided to test the free-agent market this summer (but he wants to stay).
Will be fun to see McCarty and Avery square off (I have .50 cents that says they will) the next time the Red Wings play LA.
